people spend on recording gear or studio time would do a lot more for a
performing career if it were spent on a publicist instead.

I'm wondering...based on Mr. Olhsson's Nashville location, if he might
not be thinking more in terms of country music (the best-known output
of Nashville)...which seems to follow a slightly different "set of rules"
(for example, c&w still uses "songwriters" who perform only that
function, and "artists" who sing their music...just as virtually all
popular music operated decades ago!).
